Implementing funding for the Zvw and the Wlz

Zorginstituut Nederland plays an important, active role in relation to the the Health Insurance Act (Zorgverzekeringswet, Zvw) and the Long­Term Care Act (Wet Langdurige Zorg, Wlz) funds.

  • Dividing the premium funds among health insurers (risk equalisation) and health care liaison offices.
  • Supplying health insurers and health care liaison offices with administration cost budgets within the framework of the Wlz.
  • Implementing subsidy arrangements, such as extramural treatment, ADL­care and primary care residence.
  • supports implementation of the Wlz and the Social Support Act (Wet maatschappelijke ondersteuning, Wmo) by managing information standards (iWlz and iWmo).
